Every four years, the liberal Hollywood elites condescend to the American people about which candidate they’ve endorsed and why you should follow their lead.
This is nothing new.
But now it’s time for them to stop.
It’s time to let them know that we enjoy their work (some of them) as artists, but we really don’t care about their political opinions.
Besides, their lives as celebrities are so far removed from middle-class America that when they preach, it’s disingenuous at best.
The final straw was a commercial with B and C-list celebrities pleading with the Electoral College to change their vote, or, “Don’t vote Donald Trump.”
The celebrities on this commercial included Richard Schiff, Martin Sheen, Debra Messing and some other no-names.
They claimed to be representing a “multi-partisan” plea.
In the video the celebrities said:
“By voting your conscience, you and other brave Republican electors can give the House of Representatives the option to select a qualified candidate for the presidency.
What is evident is that Donald Trump lacks more than the qualifications to be president, he lacks the necessary stability, and clearly the respect for the Constitution of our great nation.
You have the position, the authority, and the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero and change the course of history.”
Yes, this is eye-rollingly silly.
They talk as if November 8th was a fluke and that this viewpoint represents a majority of the American people.
But, December 19th has passed now, and Donald Trump is still the President-elect.
To give you an idea of how delusional the Hollywood liberal elites are, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore made a more hyperbolic plea to the electors claiming, “Donald Trump will kill us all.”
Meanwhile, Whoopi Goldberg, former filmmaker, and now just a co-host on a daytime talk show called The View, claimed she was more capable and qualified of being the President of the United States than Donald Trump.
“Here’s the difference, when I speak, at least you know that I’ve actually looked stuff up, so people think that I might be more aware. People know that I’ve had a wide variety of lives, so they think I might know some stuff.
“When you bring up Hillary, I can only think to myself she may not have been the best candidate for people, but I know she knew what she was doing.”
And you’re right Whoopi. Hillary Clinton did know exactly what she was doing – except for becoming maybe the most untrustworthy candidate in campaign history – when she called Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables.”
Movie star Mark Wahlberg, whose next movie Patriots Day is about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, might be our savior from stopping this liberal outrage from happening in 2020.
“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t [talk about politics]
You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway. They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills.
A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble.
They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family. Me, I’m very aware of the real world.
I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”
Other celebrities should follow suit with Wahlberg’s advice come 2020.
